2 Ingredient Cake 5 0 5 19
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 30 mins
  • 5 mins

    1 hr 30 mins

    1 hr 35 mins

  • Yields: Variable

Ingredients

1 Packet or Box Cake mix (any flavour you prefer) - I use 320g mix or larger

1 x 425g Can of fruit in juice (any fruit you prefer)

Directions

11. Combine the cake mix (dry from the box - no added ingredients to it at all) and the can of fruit (juice included)

2

32. Pour this into a slow cooker that is greased or lined with baking paper

4

53. Cover with a tea towel under the lid then cook on HIGH for 1.5 - 2hrs depending on your slow cooker or when skewer comes out clean

6

7I did mine in my little 1.5L cooker hence the lovely high result but a larger cooker will yield a lower cake

8The cake pictured is a vanilla cake mix and a can of mango slices - you can see the chunks of mango through the finished cake.

9Other great combinations would be chocolate cake and cherries or Vanilla cake and fruit salad.

11It doesn't get much easier than this!

Amazing.. Just under 2 hrs cooking time.
Vanilla cake mix with a can of pineapple chunks… I’m impressed…

Sure you could carefully invert your bowl
I line mine with baking paper then lift it out by that 🙂

I just made this with a spice cake mix and a 20 oz can of unsweetened pineapple because the oven is broken. It is delicious! The knife came out clean after one hour and ten minutes so I stopped cooking. Can you turn the crock pot upside down and get the cake out?

Mine is cooking now: yellow vanilla cake mix and tin of mandarins. The tin was small so I added a small container of no sugar applesauce (the kind for school lunches). I’m getting excited. I’ll test for donness at the 2 hour mark. Slurrrp.

OMG yummy and so easy, animal cake with mango

what was the size of the cherries can and cake mix please?
Maybe the balance was out?
Sounds like too much liquid.
What size cooker and what sort of cake tin please
Maybe we can help you work it out 🙂

I made last night the chocolate and cherries and it was a disaster i put water in the base of my cooker and tea towel and 2hrs later wasn’t cooked easy recipes have made harder recipes and no problem i can’t work out what went wrong had to throw it out it felt like it was too moist

I made this today with carrot cake mix and a tin of fruit salad pieces. I used a 5L slow cooker with tea towel under lid.
Cooked for 1hr 40mins on high. Vanilla icing when cooled . Thoroughly delicious, will definitely make again trying some different combinations.

I made this again the other day and it was beautiful. Vanilla cake with fruit salad mixed through. It was so moist and everyone that tried it loved it, infact I’ve emailed this recipe to a few people now who are all just as impressed as I am.

Thanks for the reply. Only just saw it as I was expecting a notification. I ended up doing it in the slower cooker using pie apple (2/3 can). There was no liquid so I made up some syrup with sugar and water. It was delicious, especially warm. Would loved to have had some ice cream with it.

I was very sceptical at first, but this recipe is fantastic. Can’t wait to try all sorts of different combinations.

This was as easy as the name suggests. I used a cheap brand cake mix with 420g canned fruit salad in syrup and put it on high for 1.5hrs, was fluffy & so yummy. Will definitely be making it again but maybe with the juice instead of fruit pieces for the kids fussiness lol

I would go 1.5 tins
In a loaf tin check it in half hr intervals after the 1hr mark I’d say 🙂
Don’t worry too much about the heat issue… I’m a constant lid lifter/checker and it doesn’t affect my recipes 🙂

My packet mix is 470 grams and the fruit I bought only came in 310g tins. Can I use all of both tins or should I use 1 1/2.

I want to use loaf tins in my slow cooker. Any idea how long to cook for? If I keep lifting the lid to see if it’s cooked I’ll lose all the heat.

New to slow cooking and not the best cook at the best of times!
Thanks

I made this today using a Chocolate cake mix and Black Cherries. It was so incredibly easy to make, I cooked mine in a 5L SC but had the mix in a cake tin so as to still get the height of the cake. It was really lovely, apart from my mistake of the Cherries I bought and possibly I should’ve let it cook a tad longer. I will be making this again though with a different cake mix and fruit. Thanks for such a great recipe that is almost foolproof (apart from me…lol). Love it!

This is sooooo good, I did the butter cake mix with sliced peaches and it is one of the best cakes I’ve ever made. I used my 3.5 litre slow cooker and it came out an alright size. Thanks for sharing Paulene x

I am trying this right now with Oreo cake mix, all I could get and a can of peaches … can’t wait to see the result 🙂

I did mine with a tin of sliced pears. My husband loved it but I found it very pudding like. I will have another go buts will ensure I have some icecream or cream on hand to have with it

This is so easy, so good. I will be doing it again and again. I did chocolate fudge cake and tin of black cherries, served with cream. YUM!

Mine took a little longer. I thought it wasn’t cooked, then remembered the fruit made it look moister. So easy. I did vanilla cake with sliced peaches.

Currently making this with a vanilla Coles cake mix and Coles canned fruit salad and added dollops of Nutella and swirled ? So looking forward to it

Made this today with lemon cake mix and pineapple chunks in syrup. Soooo tasty and beautifully moist! Can’t wait to try different flavours!!!

Did you rotate your inner pot (if round) during cooking?
Sounds like yours may cook hot.
You could also cook it in a cake tin or silicone tin etc sitting on eg a trivet in your slow cooker to get it away from the hot sides etc

I tried this today with a tin of crushed pineapple. It came out really stodgy, as though it wasn’t cooked properly but it was starting to burn on the outside. I’m not doing very well with puddings. 🙁

The cherry cake came out superbly! But a hint- I now double to glad-bake paper in strips, and then put an extra circular paper on the bottom, over the strips to stop burning.
Now, the tea-towel takes up the moisture off the top of the cake as it is cooking. Without which it would leave it wet on top.

can anyone tell me what does the tea towel do please.

Attempting this just now with tin of peach slices(410g) and a packet of vanilla cake mix (400g), wish me luck 🙂

There may be something wrong with your slow cooker?
5.5 being such a large cooker should have been done even faster than normal not sooo much longer?

Used this in a 5.5L slow cooker. Needed to be on high for 4 hours

Got my little surprize in the 1.5 L cooker.! Have choc cake mix, added an egg ( don’t need to though) and 1/2 bottle of pitted cherries.
Waiting in anticipation…….

That’s correct 🙂

Made this delicious cake 2 nights in a row. Last night i used 440gm coles chocolate cake mix with 425gm can of pitted black cherries served with vanilla ice cream. Tonight i used same cake mix with 425gm of mixed berries served with thick dollop cream. Extremely moist cake. My 19yr old daughter normally wont eat cake but has now requested to have this for dessert every night 🙂
